Ellie mostly just gets febrile seizures when she's sick. But she also had a couple as a toddler that they never found a cause for and about a year ago she had a reaction to aspartame (sp?) that caused one. (at least that's what we're going with for now based on family history.) They're so infrequent that her neurologist isn't concerned.

There is debate as to whether Carrie has absent seizures... she was medicated for 6 months and it helped her a lot developmentally, now we're waiting on a new doc to give us a final say as to whether she needs to be on it.

Kaiden used to have benign myoclonic seizures, which were caused by nightshade foods. Been seizure free for over a year now!

Hi, I've been a lurker here on and off and I should really introduce myself as I think I probably belong here!

My daughter had Infantile Spasms when she was 6 months old. She was treated with steroids for it and she has been SF since Feb. 2010.
